"Reversible Errors", published on October 29, 2002. is Scott Turow's sixth novel, and like the others, set in fictional Kindle County.

The novel begins with an attorney being assigned to handle the final appeal of a death row inmate. Though the lawyer does not even want the case, he discovers some problems with the conviction. Unlikely allies are found, including the police officer who made the arrest and the judge who presided over the initial trial. It becomes a race against the clock to determine the truth.

Many of the minor characters in "Reversible Error" also appear in Turow's later novels, which are all set in fictional, Midwestern Kindle County.


In 2004, a television miniseries based on the novel and bearing the same title was released starring William H. Macy, Tom Selleck and Felicity Huffman.
